Jake made the mistake of drinking at a party and getting drunk enough to do something stupid. He got in a car with his drunken two best friends to go tell Samantha that he loved her. Jake had never had the courage to ask his long time crush Samantha out, but thought he found it while drunk. There was a car accident and Jake's throat was punctured by a fence post ruining his vocal chords for life. While recovering, Samantha became very important in making his life worth living and they slowly became involved.
Samantha does not believe in love. Her father and mother were in love, but he left when she was six and her life has been very hard. Jake's accident brings him into her life when she desperately needs a friend and confident. But then her father comes back into her life and wants to take her away and she is desperate to stay with Jake.
Samantha and Jake go through the struggles of a new relationship, misunderstanding, anger, and insecurity which are all magnified by Jake's muteness and the pressure Samantha is under, but they also experience joy, contentedness and ultimately LOVE. I really loved that this story was told from Jake, a guy's perspective. It made it really sweet.

This is the first book by Ms. Taylor that I've read and with all the praise I gave it, you know it won't be the last! The story flowed and there was never a dull moment. The characters were so well written that I felt what they felt throughout. I've also never read a book that was totally from the male's pov. I felt that Ms. Taylor did an awesome job with that as well. And even though this story was about teenagers, I didn't feel like it was too "young" for me. I was engrossed the entire time. I'm so happy that this was my first book for this year. Hopefully it's a sign of more great books to come! :-)
The story itself is a roller coaster of emotions. When Jake was frustrated I felt my heart wrench in my chest. When he realized perhaps he could do this, I felt joy. The story was intense from the first page and I couldn't put it down until it was over. Keary Taylor is beyond talented. She's a new author to me and I'm so glad I decided to read this book.
I think a major part of why I loved this book so much was the realness of it all. There were no platitudes of everything will be okay and both the good and bad got equal air time. We all take so much for granted and it was eye-opening to see how Jake handled losing his voice. This is going to sound really cheesy, but it was as if losing his voice led Jake to find his mettle.
This book will stick with you longer after you've finished the last page. If you're looking for a book that will take you on an unbelievable journey, you need to pick up this book. I'm just surprised it's taken me this long to discover Keary Taylor.
